The Craig lab heads South!

This past November the Craig lab headed down south to sunny Orlando Florida for the 37th North American SETAC conference. Hossein presented a poster on his MSc research: “Multi-stressor impacts on fish energetics: A comparison between lab and field studies”. Heather also presented a poster on her initial MSc work: “Multi-stressor impacts on the development and maintenance of epigenetic regulation in larval and adult zebrafish (Danio rerio). I presented a platform presentation on collaborative work with Andrew Doxey and my former undergraduate student Chris Kuc: “Rainbow trout exposed to B[a]P yields conserved microRNA binding sites in DNA methyltransferases across 500 million years of evolution”. Overall it was a successful event establishing new connections and catching up with old friends. Of course I would be remiss if I didn’t mention some of the highlights of attending a conference in Orlando…particularly the theme parks and amazing resturants. In particular the Craig lab ventured to Iron chef Morimoto’s Asia restaurant in Disney Springs – absolutely amazing food, especially the A-5 wagyu beef!
